It folded to Andrew Donabedian in the cutoff and he bet 2,200,000. Mihai Niste announced pot from the small blind but he didn't have enough to make it to 7,400,000 so he put all his chips in the middle. The dealer counted it out and it turned out to be 7,100,000 and Niste was all-in. Tom Franklin then put his last 5,500,000 in the middle and Donabedian called quickly.

Tom Franklin: {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{q-Spades}{8-Hearts}
Mihai Niste: {a-Spades}{j-Clubs}{7-Spades}{6-Clubs}
Andrew Donabedian: {q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{2-Spades}

Franklin called for hearts and he immediately flopped the nut flush when the flop fell {k-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{2-Hearts}. Neither Donabedian or Niste caught up on the {3-Spades} turn and {7-Diamonds} river but Niste did manage to win the side pot to stay alive with 4 big blinds.
